The location is ideal to visit Rome, since it is very close to Termini and lots of buses. There is a front desk where the reservations are managed and the several floors are controlled by video. The room we stayed in was in a building nextdoor, with a small lift. The room was clean and neat, had a desk, closet,... More

Spend the extra money and stay somewhere else! There are tons of hotel choices near the Termini station; we just chose the wrong one. We booked 5 rooms ;every one was awful. The bed was like sleeping on an ironing board. The shower had mildew and was missing the door. The refrigerator was barely cold and also had mold in... More

The first stop of my Tour of Europe starts in Rome and working the way up to end in Chester, UK and my first hotel experience in Rome is this small apartment style hotel. It's conveniently located very near to the central train and bus station in Rome, where one can take a "hop-on-hop-off" bus easily or, get on a... More

The hotel is basic but clean and is very conveniently located: a 5-minutes walk from the main train station and a walkable distance to most sights. In four+ days we spent in Rome we never used public transportation or taxis. The room was quiet, we slept with the window open. The Internet connection was not particularly good but it was... More

We booked a room for two nights at B&B Farima in Rome and apparently the Cortorillo Hotel manages several B&Bs as well as the hotel. We were offered an upgrade for 20 euros, stated that the upgrade had a private bathroom. (We thought the B&B did when we booked it.) We accepted and were taken down one block to a... More

I had a short visit in Rome and I could tell that this Hotel was a big disappointment to us. The front desk is situated on the ground floor. Exactly on the main street where everyone who passes by can see you checking in. A blond lady received us, she took our IDs and she gave us the impression that... More

Excellent budget hotel. Brilliant location, close to termini, which is the main train station. Everything is is close walking distance, however the metro and bus links and excellent to get everywhere. This hotel is a good base for exploring the city. Rooms are very basic, with quite old furnishings, although has TV and fridge. There is a wet room with... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
